    I love how I used everything from from the garden (herbs, tomatoes, and garlic) ! It is almost like a bruschetta with less carbs. I used homemade whole wheat light bread crumbs. Super easy and fast!!

    Quick and tasty! I liked the fresh basil on top. Use real bread crumbs, not those sawdust ones from a canister and it will taste ten times better!
